The rig on the left is our current rig, a double-wide Hannigan mounted
on a 1986 BMW K100RS. We bought it in 1993, when our second child was on the way,
to replace our single wide Vetter. The Vetter is on the right, mounted on a 1985
BMW K100RT. It was a great rig for one kid. We depended on it so much to get us to
the many rallies we go to, that we were unwilling to have it "down" while we
converted to the Hannigan. A great deal came along for the RS, with only 10,000
miles on it. We had planned to put all the RT stuff on the RS, but we liked the RS
sooooo much better. First of all, no heat problems, ever. The RT tended to cook
its rider if the temp ever went over 80. Over 90 it was down right unbearable.
The RS handle bars had to go, so we put RT bars on it. A leading link from
Unit Forks in England rounded out the package nicely.
